From the publisher:

Who created the iconic character of Batman? You only have to look at a Batman comic book to find the answer - every story is marked with the words "Batman created by Bob Kane." But what if that wasn't the whole truth? What if someone else, other than the legendary Bob Kane, had a hand in the creation of what is arguably the most popular comic book hero of all time?

Author Marc Tyler Nobleman explores for the first time the life of Bill Finger - the unsung hero behind the Dark Knight. Bill started off as a struggling writer and artist when he was approached by Bob, who had just been commissioned by the company that would become DC Comics to create a superhero sensation. Bill helped invent Batman, from concept to costume to character, and he even dreamed up the Dark Knight's haunting origins and colorful nemeses. Yet Bill did all this in obscurity, and he was not recognized as co-creator until after his death - and is still not well-known even today.

Cartoonist and popular Batman artist Ty Templeton illustrates Marc Tyler Nobleman's exhaustive research, which extends all the way to the present day and the fight to finally provide Bill Finger with the credit he deserves. Perfect for the reluctant reader, Bill the Boy Wonder is a classic story of the underdog. Bill's story is a reminder that even the greatest talents have fears and shortcomings. It will empower readers of all ages to take pride in - and ownership of - their work.
